I have very limited experience with photography (other than a failed attempt to get into it a few years back). I'm looking for something suitable for plenty of pointing and clicking, but also, I am interested in getting into it as a hobby too, so something that will take me into the lower levels of actual 'photography' would be cool also.
Removable storage is a must, a rechargable battery would be brilliant but not essential, and preferably small enough to take out on the town on occassion!

My knowledgeless browsing turned up this; Fuji FinePix E900, which I think looks good for what I need and is around the price I'm looking at. Can probably go up to around £250 ($450), but if there's anything less that fits the bill, I'm all ears!

Also been recommended this; Olympus Mju 700 but it looked a little... fashionable to be a cost effective choice, but then what do I know!

Thanks, Leigh

Leigh-

Either the very highly rated Canon A-620 or the Fuji E-900 would both be excellent for your purposes. The are both excellent, and you might even save a bit with the A-620. However, camera prices may indeed be a good deal different in the UK. Give them a look. I think you will be very pleased.

Thanks very much for the pointer. Just had a look at the Canon, it's marginally cheaper but they're both roughly the same price. Shall have a read of reviews and will probably order one or the other tomorrow.

Thanks very much for the tip!

You should really also look at the Fuji F30, as well as the A530/A540.
